Update on Miss New Years and mean-spirited people

Miss New Years is almost there. All the stitching and backstitching is done, I just have the beading to do. She has been fun to stitch and hopefully I'll have her finished in a week or so.
I need to address the person who left an anonymous comment for me (I did not publish it). If you dislike my blog, then don't read it. I have found this somewhat puzzling that someone would leave me a comment about how much they dislike my blog and yet they seem to continue reading it. To whomever left the comment: Get a life and move on, there are hundreds of blogs out there you can be looking at. If you wish to continue to criticize me then be courageous enough to not hide behind the "anonymous" button and do it under your own blog name.

New years fairy looks great, she is so pretty.

It is rude, cowardly and mean spirited to leave nasty comments and hide behind an anonymous name. Hope they stop bugging you.

Carla said...

New Years Fairy looks fantatic!!! Very sparklie!

Sorry about the nasty comment you've received.

Kathy said...

Sorry to hear someone is being awful to you. What are people thinking when they do those kinds of things? Blogging is for everyone's fun and enjoyment. You almost finish looks great.

We will rise above petty people. Shake it off. We don't need that kind around us.

Vonna said...

She looks stunning! Boy you are a supreme stitcher! I can't get over how much stitching you accomplish! Hurray for you!

Sorry someone left a nasty comment. Let it roll off of you, it's not worth getting yourself upset about it, plus they are in the minority, not the majority ;)

Sharon said...

Your fairy looks wonderful! People always amaze me with the things that they do-what was the point of that? I hope that you will not let them deter you from ever blogging. I enjoy visiting!

Dawn said...

New Year Fairy is beautiful!!

Kathryn said...

Good! You turned off anonymous comments. There are still plenty of your friends left to make comments. You don't need drive by sniping.

Ranae said...

New Years Fairy is looking beautiful.
Sorry about the rude comment, I am sure they are just jealous of your awesome blog.

Kathy A. said...

Your fairy is looking lovely. I have enjoyed reading your blog everytime I have looked in! YOu are doing a wonderful job of representing yourself!

Beth said...

Very pretty project you've got going on there. I just started getting back into cross stitch after a long break. I don't understand people leaving rude comments either. I belonged to an online knitting group and someone posted a mean comment on one gal's blog, I mean really mean, saying the sweater she had posted a picture of was downright ugly, what was she thinking, etc. etc. etc. She was practically in tears. I guess it just takes all kinds.

mercy said...

Hi I don't think I've ever commented on your blog but sorry to hear someone left you a rude comment - I LIKE YOUR BLOG :-)

Kendra said...

Goodness, how rude of someone to make a point of telling you they don't like your blog! And to do it under the guise of an anonymous troll. Coward.

So sorry you had to deal with that. FWIW, I enjoy reading your blog, even though I may not comment very often. :-)

Squazi said...

The fairy is looking fantastic. What an excellent job you have done.

I think sometimes people leave unsavoury comments only because they are jealous. You are correct in saying that they should get a life. How rude of them!!

Karen said...

cowards never do things in the open they always have to hide, sorry you had a comment left like that .
Your New Years Fairy looks wonderful

Nicola said...

Your New Years Fairy is looking great!

I'm sorry that you were upset by an anonymous comment. I agree with you, if they don't like your blog they shouldn't read it. (Mind you I can't see why they would dislike it.) In my opinion if they can't say something nice then they shouldn't say anything at all. I, for one, enjoy visiting your blog, even if I don't always leave a comment.

Rachael said...

Your fairy is looking great!

BeckySC said...

That fairy is looking wonderful.

Sally said...

New Year's Fairy is beautiful.

I can't understand people who leave nasty comments. Why read a blog if they don't like it? There are some strange people! When I had an MSN space someone left me a comment saying there was too much about cross stitching! Er excuse me that's the whole point of my space! LOL! Needless to say I no longer have a space as I find Blogger a friendlier community, on the whole.

Mary Ann said...

She is looking fantastic!

And, how rude of that person!

Barbeeque4 said...

Your blog is juts SUPER!!!! and I really enjoy reading every time!!!!

NYF is very pretty!!!!

I started my VHOHRH.....just brown silk and linen, but everything starts with a single stitch.

Keep up the great work and wonderful Blog!!!!!!!!!!!

Hazel said...

Oh my goodness I can't believe anyone would be so rude to say that. They surely have some psycho problems! I love your blog and your stitching. Rock and roll!! xx

Lucy said...

Apparently that person has issues in their own life and you are the "cat" they felt like kicking!!! Beautiful Fairy by the way!!! (and great blog!)

Lavender Rose said...

I just love your New Years Fairy! The colors are wonderful.
Hugs,
Deb

Mindi said...

New Year's Fairy looks fantastic, I really should get back to my seasonal fairies.

I'm so sorry someone not only left a nasty comment, but was such a ratfink to do it anonymously. You have the right idea, if they don't like your blog, move along and read another.

Andie said...

Miss New Year is looking gorgeous! *hugs* Horrid people are not allowed here!!

Anita said...

Wow your fairy is almost to the finish line.... congrats. Sorry to hear that you had to dealt with childish behavior on your blog. I would say the same thing "go get a life" and leave my blog alone.

How sad that someone could be stitching but yet spends time being mean.
They are obviously unhappy with themselves.

Please ignore the mean person who commented on your blog but didn't have the guts to admit who they were, some people seem to enjoy making others miserable. Just know that loads of people love reading your blog.
